To dynamically form coalitions of decision-makers the degree of autonomy assumed by each decision-maker must be explicitly agreed upon beneficial for coalition numbers and result in productive development of solutions for the goals the coalition is pursuing. Autonomy is a very complex concept. This discussion develops a definition for one dimension of autonomy: decision-making control. The discussion highlights the notion of decision-making control (autonomy) in the context of decision-making groups or coalitions. The development off this definition draws salient features from previous work.
